Artistic Director Christal Wagner and Danceworks Performance MKE collectively take a scientific approach to unearthing what happens when the nervous system goes haywire. This concert offers a meditative exploration of movement and visuals that dive into the stress cycle, the nervous system and its various subdivisions. Influenced by the stressors of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the company aims to support our community struggling with mental health and general stress through a year-long mission that exposes how we can overcome these deeply wired roadblocks and reveal a path to a healthier future. We offer an educational and microscopic look into the fight, flight or freeze response by exploring ideas anyone can employ to become more deeply self aware. Composer Sam Mullooly premieres an ambitious work of complimentary sentiment titled "A Balance."

This DPMKE curated concert features the ideas of the performers and guest artists of DPMKE as they explore the impacts of labels, their danger to society, and the liberating effects of restructuring the societal labels around us. In a curious investigation of the internal assignment of ideas we apply to ourselves and others on a daily basis, Danceworks aims to heighten the voices of the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ company and community members. In this concert, we collectively break down the use of stereotypes, internal bias, fear, stigma, shame and the inability to separate a person from a label dubbed by society and/or self.
